Living the life to the full. Sounds wonderful, but what do you do when you are not a thrill-seeker like me?

“It’s not easy being green” sings Kermit, but it was his ‘green-ness’ that brought shade to all he touched. How can we bring shade to those around us?
We prepare for the birth of a newborn, and we mark the end as we celebrate the life that was. What about the ‘-‘ dash in the middle.
Death or ‘sorry business’ within the Aboriginal Culture is a truly shared and community experience. Do the indigenous cultures around the world, including here in Australia, have something the teach us?
